Ottawa: Plosive Productions presents three live episodes of the 1940s radio show “SUSPENSE” starting October 28

Thursday, October 29, 2020

Prior to the pandemic’s second wave, Plosive Productions and The Gladstone had hoped to be able to offer a return to the theatre with a special Hallowe’en Edition of our annual Radio Show. While that production has to wait for another time, we invite you to listen to an “unstaged” reading by the cast of the material we were preparing. So please tune in from home—for free!—just like families did in the Golden Age of Radio.

Just in time for Hallowe’en, we’re bringing the stars of Old Time Radio back from the dead! Plosive Productions offers you a series of readings from our annual Radio Show with a spooky twist. Travel back in time to 1944 as we recreate three of the scariest episodes from the top thriller series of the Golden Age of Radio, Suspense:

If you can’t catch a stream live, you’ll be able to watch after the fact at any time through November 8.

Three episodes of the Old Time Radio series
selected, adapted and directed by David Whiteley
with Nick Amott, Rebecca Benson, Jacqui Du Toit, Robin Guy, Alex Panneton and Kat Wong

FREE “unstaged” reading

30-minute individual episodes October 28, 29 & 30 @ 7:30pm
